How to Fix Democracy

Jun 24, 2020

Us Later, Not Me Now

Rebecca Henderson is the John and Natty McArthur University Professor at Harvard University Business School. In this interview, hosted by Andrew Keen, she explains how she has been re-imagining capitalism. Free markets, Professor Henderson argues, need to be balanced with free politics, mirroring what many others in How to Fix Democracy Season 2 have identified as a core linkage between unhealthy capitalism and damaging politics. There’s an immediacy and selfishness in politics and business now, she says, which reflects more of a “me now” instead of an “us later” mentality.
